The final two bouts saw Toto Kongpatapee of Thailand defeat Britain Jeff Phinyo Muay Thai and Petch-Prayafai Darbsong-Thangluang of Thailand victorious against Canada’s Andre Sitk-Kamnan Kamon.

The final bout between Petch and Andre also won the award for most fierce contest of the evening with Myanmar’s Ya Nai Aung receiving the fighter of the night accolade.

The event was inagurated by Phuket Deputy Governor Pichet Panapong and President of the Phuket Sports Association Thammawat Wongcharoenyot. The latter stated that the event, organised by the Phuket Sports Association, Laguna Resorts and Hotels and Siam Fight Entertainment, was timed to coincide with National Sports Day celebrations, which was officially last Thursday (Dec 16).

Thammawat added that the event also strived to conserve Thai arts and culture by continuing topromote Thai boxing as a form of tourism to help stimulate the local economy and enhance Phuket’s position as a leading sports orientated city.
